It is very sweet, minty and spicy and similar to Sweet Birch. The natural constituent Methyl Salicylate is the common denominator affecting the scent of both Birch and Wintergreen. In aromatherapy they share similar uses. Wintergreen works well in massage oils for sports injuries if dilluted properly. It is also a great refresher in room diffusers.
